THE RESTAURANT: Millennial Commentary on Middle America

THE RESTAURANT: Millennial Commentary on Middle America


So we find ourselves in a restaurant. Not
any restaurant you know, or maybe not even a restaurant at all. This restaurant,
for all intents and purposes, is an example; a microcosm of our society; a lens through which–
We get it. You’re an arts major. Look, it’s just a restaurant; that’s
all it is. I don’t get why you English people have
to find hidden meaning in everything you see. I mean, ask the writer of the
show, for Christ’s sake, he’s right over there– You two are talking about two sides of the
same coin. Regardless of which side the audience sees, neither affects the
direction towards which the coin is rolling What?
Toward which the coin is–really? Listen to yourselves. This is a restaurant, not a fucking coin.
I don’t bust my ass every day to be told I’m working inside of Benjamin
Franklin’s metal ass head. Benjamin Franklin isn’t on a coin–
Everyone, please. You’re all saying the same thing. Never mind what the audience sees, we’re just sharing our experiences. They’ll understand. Maybe I am being
intentionally vague, but hey; that’s what modern theatre is all about.
I mean, the other day, I saw this show at my university: it was all contrived
bullshit social commentary portrayed through the allegory of a frog jumping from pond to pond.
That sounds awful. Yeah, it was pretty bad, but my friend wrote it, and it was free, so I kind of had to go. So, you admit this is just a restaurant, nothing else. Your whole “microcosm” thing was contrived bullshit like you said!
Yeah, but I’m a student. Contrived
bullshit is what we do. Just because I dropped out doesn’t mean–
Hey, please, we have customers! Right, I need to take a call from corporate, so back to work everyone. …and do me a favor: no more addressing the audience like this. You have no idea what’s going on, do you? What are you doing?
C’mon, you heard the manager: Stop addressing the audience. So you see on stage, typical restaurant–is it okay for me to say it’s just a restaurant? I get it, yeah, today’s the play, and okay, it’s fun to use that metaphor and be gray, but that’s passé. Every fuckin’ show that I see is trying to be edgy and inspire me, and I agree that it’s good to be avant-garde and art nouveau, but can we stick to restaurants for this show? You acknowledge the play, you break the fourth wall, admit the metaphor, and you’ll be doing it all. “Every fuckin’ show” that you see is exactly what I see right here in front of me. Yes, you’re right. We tell a restaurant story, but that does not mean we cannot address anything more, see a restaurant, in many ways, can be a microcosm. Of what we are, of what will be, of our greater society. Day by day, we take what we can get and earn our pay, but, hey, who’s counting? The coin in the jar don’t stretch out too far, but I keep my child fed. And, still, we move ahead. I wonder what call the manager’s taking. Sounds like standard corporate B.S.
I hope it’s nothing. Ooh, foreshadowing. We’re all here for different reasons. This one? Trying to earn some cash between credits. Her? Barely skirting by supporting a child. And me? I’m trying to make a career out of this. This restaurant is a chain–one of many. It’s a comfortable place: great hours, good pay, a friendly group of people, and every three years, the bigwigs that own the entire chain host a “corporate conference,” or something like that, where people like me—the low-downs— get to have our say in the way the company is run. I’ll bet that THE MANAGER sends you this time around. I don’t know. He’ll probably send his sibling. Well, that’s not fair. You work so hard, and everyone appreciates what you’ve done for this location. Every restaurant location gets to send one of its workers to the conference to represent their interests. While the conference goes on, restaurant employees back home vote on representatives, and the representative with the most votes gets to propose new company policy. Yeah, but it seems like the same reps are chosen every year, and they never do anything meaningful. Which makes the workers think that their votes don’t matter, which repeats the process. I’d like to see what I could do for this place. Everything comes naturally to that girl.
Meanwhile, I’m busting my ass trying to look good for the manager, but he always
finds something to yell at me about Cleaning and prepping, the constant
overstepping of your boundaries, yet soundly, you continue showing up, forming a
work ethic, don’t stress kid, ’cause life is full of tests, kid, and I failed the last one. Yeah, I failed the last one. ‘hate to admit it, but, if THE POSTER CHILD gets to go to that convention and actually does something meaningful, maybe I’ll finally get a promotion here. Honey, you’d better hurry and get to work. You’re 15 minutes past the start of your shift. I know, I know. Traffic was worse than I expected—what can you do? Hey—do me a favor and don’t tell the manager. Not much to worry about when the manager’s your brother. Yeah, the fuck’s he gonna do? Take a dollar out of your allowance? Easy… You two think that everything comes easy to me. I “don’t do a single ounce of work.” Reality is anything but what you two see. I put in my work. I get my reward. If you work hard, you’ll get the pay. It’s always been that way. But no hard feelings, guys. Yes, I know—I understand that profits haven’t been as high the last two years, but the workers depend on us. They depend on me. They can’t handle a pay cut. No, you need to see the bigger picture here: these people have families. If they put in the work, they deserve to make a living wage. Look, it is easy to sit in your
corporate office and not understand what I’m telling you Who am I to change their lives when I couldn’t fight, or change at all. Okay. Fine. I’ll make the changes right away. come in look take a seat make yourself
comfortable now look as you know you are my most
consistent employee I mean you’re valuable you’re hard-working your key
what kind to go on forever can you hear to a third look I know you
want to make changes to you and get back to your fellow employee I mean that is
great that is truly admirable but well some things are beyond I got a call from corporate today the
desert changes I need to make you always well I am sorry but the
corporate conference but I am sorry I wish it didn’t worked out this way but
corporate is just putting a lot of pressure on me and simply what I can’t
afford is that need why because because I know you’ll want to make team I mean
you will want to stir things up and that is great then truly admirable but that
is not always how these things work out but isn’t that the purpose of the
conference look I am sorry but I don’t have another choice I’m sending my
sister but you know an ideal world you know it’s fine I understand oh hey so I just had a call it corporate
no sweet the same thing about me look I know how much you really want
that better title it’s more than that I worked my ass off easy on the language
look I can’t get you that right what look it it’s beyond my control
you at least tell me why doesn’t concern it does concern me I needed that
promotion I’m fairly paying rent as is and you have we are on the verge of
being discontinued our location hasn’t made quota in two years if we don’t cut
cost then none of us will have any jobs at all get plenty of customers now Mike
well we can’t meet corporates 10 another shit that people like me go through look
I tried to tell them I tried it’s fine you know I can still get you that roast
I just I just need you to keep working hard while I work with something then
once we’re out of this run I will get you then better time I will continually asked me and possibly treat
me with contempt animosity 110 shred of your generosity would be your welcome

comes your for Hardware wind I see no I’m sick and tired of these empty
promises waiting on a lie I have always been the
one to stay behind Oh make sure things are fine I’m trying

overtime is everything all right um fine that’s like what did you want to talk to
me about well your works good I mean I admire your persistence in print but my
employment I think that downturn our what why look it’s beyond my control I
can help find you work elsewhere it’s just that so I’m gonna lose benefit well
yes that is our policy just take it easy right sit down I my son is nine now

that way for him but I can’t count the number of dreams I’ve had to college
last year I told him as animals to forgot to come to our house that he grew
device with many present this year but I’m sorry he’s cutting my hours that cheat piece
of shit won’t even let me make my own food anymore he’s coming off my benefit
I was in a retire awful working in this place I’ve been moved to part-time I

promotion your older brother promise – promise
hard work promotions not promises you think I don’t work hard you think I
haven’t given board at this placement its ever given to me easy that’s not how
she meant it then how the hell did you mean no I was just saying if you keep
working harder you’ll get the promotion working hard is what I’ve been doing
okay she didn’t mean anything personal there are reasons beyond any of us that
you couldn’t get the right now so you’re on her side what no there aren’t any
sides here I’m just saying obviously this place is in a money
drought and a promotion for the fee make I’m sure going to carpet in the future
right and as your representative I just want to say that we all pitch in and
work a little harder we can start pulling in the money we need to get out
of this are you on this hard work we’re getting about no you have to go
out there no heart you know in your heart that you
wrote someone’s gotta work yeah hard work did you the that’s the

people that you always forget because we agree with you then nothing ever came
freeze but hard works is not the only Oh all right everyone I can see that you’re
upset and I may have said some things that I might regret but I’m not finished
yet there’s something that none of you seems
to get and remember I’m the one who’s going so don’t you forget I’ll do what I
can but that’s a promise you all know some parts times are upon us well it’s
not no it’s not a guess either you need to you there this musical pretty
depressing it’s time for we found too much I was serving that a far way back the
Guyanese rent came in for a snack they ordered some drinks stay there to chill

you feel bad don’t you I’m not dying stop him why you know the
person inquest off that single short impression it
seems like or sensation and she’s guilty until proven innocent that prove her
innocence this is not a conversation we’re going to have if you say so
just to know that we’re always here to talk seriously stay safe
don’t patronize me work is closed tomorrow see you Friday
what hey you’ve reached a manager I can’t
into the phone right now please leave a message
confinement what’s up hey did you get the message
that work is closed tomorrow yeah I’m pumped whatever happen though oh no take
what you can get I guess no it’s that girl from work what the hell no I’m not
trying anything look I’ve gotta go enjoy the day off
see you Friday Hey Lichtman oh yeah sure what’s up the
manager is not not a great place right now his sister was in a car accident
holy shit yeah I know she was hit by a drunk driver and stoplight minor
injuries still she’ll be fine but she’ll be out for a few weeks so who’s going to
go to the convention look you know it’s going to be you the manager wanted me to
tell you but just know that whatever you think you can try and change at the
convention it’s not going to be easy they don’t want us to win look I’ve got
no stake in the convention I’m going to be fine either way but whatever ones
you’re going to expect you to help them so just be ready for that yeah I don’t
have any skin in the game either but doesn’t that make it our duty to help
the others if you see it that way sure look I’m going to go I’ve said my lines
and I’m just here to advance the father ambiguity to you peace result Jesus
Christ you got a crush on me or something manager sibling was in a car accident oh
shit she alright yeah she’s gonna be fine but all those jokes we made about
the sibling getting hurt I I didn’t think anything would actually happen
does that mean you’re going to the convention yeah bullshit babe up got
some good wait wait wait don’t go around telling anybody just yet just wait for
the manager to say something about it and I can’t be making any promises I
don’t know how much influence I’ll have bullshit I can tell you what to say
don’t you realize how lucky we are lucky that the manager sibling was in a car
accident okay well if you put it that way
I’m just saying that maybe it’s fate you get to go to that convention wait she
could have died tonight we still don’t know if she’s completely fine
okay okay you’re right look I actually have to go bye ok everyone I have some announcements to
make firstly as some of you may have heard my sister was involved in a car
accident on Wednesday night I am happy to say she is doing well and should make
a full recovery within the next few weeks that being said the corporate
convention still takes place next week and seeing as how my sister will no
longer be able to make it I have decided to send the poster child instead finally
I realized there is some discontent with the policies put forth by management me
and I want you all to know I continually keep your best interest in mind look I
wish things didn’t work out this way but this is where we’re at but the more
customers in revenue we can earn the sooner you can get out of this mess and
the sooner we return to our old home I hope that can motivate all of you to
continue working hard thank you that’s interesting mind you wouldn’t
constantly bow down to management hey it’s not like that he does care oh so
you’re on his side now there are five here just because he’s not in the same
position is you doesn’t mean he can’t empathize with you
these are his policies look these policies were the only way to keep this
place afloat right now what are you a sellout now what do you
propose we do just sit here and get fucked by corporate no we proposed
company policy listen I talked to the manager and the only reason he only
wanted to pretend his sibling is because he was afraid that the negative
complaints from our location would only worsen relations with corporate it makes
sense well I talked to him and I convinced him that if we can rally
enough about other locations I could be the one to propose good company policy
no one here has ever been chosen you’d have to get supportive locations across
the country not only that you have to get people to vote it seems the same
reps are voted on every year no one thinks there’s a point in the conference
except for complaining and corporate while they’re there you’re right your
original purpose of the convention to propose company policy is all but
vanished but if we can get enough other people on our side that maybe just maybe I have an uncle in court Brandt we
and I know that’ll make them humming poster-child
the people no my position gives me the ability to
speak for those who hint the corporate convention starts next week I’ll be
there speaking on your behalf but this won’t be possible without your
ideas you are connections and most of all your support our job is to find
those of our corporate you stand in the middle ground the place in between where
our voices can sway them towards empathy and compassion the time is now okay everyone’s attention tweet as I’m
sure you are all aware the perfect mention is nd today that being said I
can’t and what detention you’re all paying to it
please remember though that you are still on the job and you will have
customers to please the poster child has done amazingly so
far she’s plenty based against other workers spoke in her mind and made a
name for herself today it’s the most important so give a final speech
alongside two other representatives everyone will keep one of them to
propose a new company policy this process sounds incredibly my treat
after all our president of company I director conductor director ethereal and
an inspector ensuring that they carry out my will and still I smell a certain
show when I walk through the doors but I am sorry for mother to run all
that your side and I’m poor you continue to see the home to me your brother’s desert covering butchers
up the deep regard is privileged scorns dismiss people enjoy anger your anger
vices care kept completeness he’ll never be displayed to position that you
what what well it’s not my place to say what I want but what I want say that
you’re capable of much more I’m joining the way to provide I’m not
that person I’m just stating fact for more gun clicks in the workers we all
they’ve given you their undivided attention different different is good
they like different that means change right Yukiko workers have unique ability to
move but you know deep down your Charlie wanted the elite so go out and speak be
the worker Saviour we both know you’re not one of them regardless of the
results are going to be it out ladies and gentlemen your
representatives greetings everyone and I just wanted to say how privileged I am
to be here on the present day my first order of business is to improve order in
our businesses I can leave the country where we’re no longer starving Leo’s
right now we’re with our deeply was to flourish which is born but it doesn’t
happen to pay that way well speak I believe that we kill the tree when we
realign the bar benitez producer lethargically was you store you may
inform but if Ellen has to somewhere we were not okay so now if you’ll please stand with me we
can plan to see a new age of prosperous improvement where everyone wins
and nobody Jesus Christ water is the dahle tea I understand that we want to maintain
harmony no get that’s always what they say but how much harder do we have to
work to justify the margin between us she’s got a point
yeah I’m feeling what she had to say but it didn’t sound as good
I mean that melody has been using the show like three times already it’s
repetition for effect your words are nice your demeanor is cool but you’re
still just a bright-eyed kid straight from school you want to get paid and
ended too your entire life has been handed to you allow me to reply I don’t
want to see your cousin be the bad guy I simply want to say that the workers say
they want their pay and they won’t say I beg while you don’t listen a bit men
treat the lender shit and probably worst of all the manager takes them all so I
come from money I’m glad for what I got but I also come from empathy my friends
deserve a shot Wow well stay tuned while we tally ho the interview I know going on right now
I’m to get some promotions tell minute a another goddamn word about that
conversion how did you know how do I know you’ve been waiting on that
promotion for years I learned a long time ago that waiting
for something that won’t come it’s useless and I’m done waiting for you
your stuffs packed at home my home funny it’s it’s fine I didn’t need her I
don’t need her my son
hello hi honey I’m good yes our family’s okay why do you ask the what bills no
how do you don’t worry about that I have everything under control I know it’s a
lot of money but we’ll find a way I promise
I love you don’t worry about the bills you’re too young to worry about those I
love you Hey there should be again a map data
what’s happening and I ultimately just a tool for both
sides the gentleman the poster child I never thought you’d bet on an underdog
much less come out on top not that it matters corporate convention was bust but child
was given to three weeks following company policy she did by the time it
actually became policy it was nothing like what the president originally
planned some time as the poster child would try to understand what we needed
but she couldn’t articulate it well enough to solve our problems because she
just had an experience what we had now we’re stuck what seemed like the only
way to solve our problems didn’t work I’ve been trying to keep my kid’s mind
and my own mind off of the bills me I think observing trying to find a place
to live that were being picked up on my ex and we’re all just first of all it’s having a business trip
whichever locations representative what their detention so all the big names are
in town for a while even the president hey are you alright
sure acting kinda like a zombie what are you something’s been off about her ever
since the cruckston I hate to say it but do you think that she’s still all right
in the head I need I really don’t know and don’t be afraid to talk about things
like that even if they’re uncomfortable for you it’s good to ask questions no
I’ve seen this before the drugs that give them after being an accident
opioids no way she comes from a good family
so anyway dude about tonight I’m sorry but you can’t crush my police again
I’ve got babies so tell them I’m your roommate the love in you say to me one
night and it’s been over three I’ve been nice enough nice enough I’m gonna hold
come on man have some sympathy look man I’m sorry the lady herself thinks and she got
quite like you wanted huh well if I knew you were going to impede
me at every step I wouldn’t have tried is that so or would you try it anyway
just see if you could overcome it and don’t blame me I’m not the one who
stopping you then who is the people whose security depends on staying where
they are right now the people whose security their sense of
self their way of life their purpose are shaped by the benefit therefore Nik
merely as members of portrait vacation time health care networks and contacts
it’s all they’ve ever known aren’t you the same me I started in a restaurant I
know how to get by about the benefits of my position and you must have some
semblance of sympathy for the workers still in the restaurants who need those
benefits who need fairness life’s like this though how do I put this fuck it no
one’s gonna remember the show anyway I’m gonna use the cliche metaphor to get my
point across in life you’re dealt a set of cards rarely the same as other
players but you get what you get and that’s how you play you play well you
can still win by one admit it’s easier for the people with the trump card everything is ultimately meaningless and
seemingly keeping us from realizing the guys behind push the truth lies and the
end everybody died so I care began to introspect and see others and their
respect and the long run aren’t worth your spit only serve to give you shit
action has no consequence when existence knees and intestines generally of the
cosmic fanning abroad Freddie everything matters to get everything
done years from now so you can waste your time and I said by choose to live in careful
failure you are only covered by I made my way here I started from the bottom I
took advantage of the advantages given me huge used to fail and remember you’re
one of us you would have gone this far if you weren’t embrace it now go sing a
song that reflects on what I just told you so I find myself back here force to make a central decision here maybe another way but I can’t see
past this dilemma I don’t know why I’m still trying baby I just I use my potential I say better prize projection
I won’t betrayed my friends than I kept these a week my mistakes and the fact
that I can embrace them I don’t have the Constitution the face has had on but I
have comic resolution solace and retribution in the fact that I’m back
out of point we’re all retreat returned home wish them well and never be seen
although I tried I know I did too so I guess it’s farewell you’ll need a poster
child new so I want the McDonald’s this morning
breakfast yeah now they’ve got these new ordered machines it’s some kind of robot
shit like replacing the people behind the
registers damn do you think corporates gonna replace us oh for sure it’s gonna
be soon I’ve been watching these documentaries on YouTube about AI and
they say that soon there’s going to be this kind of singularity thing or a
robots or Smarties UPS so what are we gonna do I don’t know man I’ve been
taking coding classes online so I have job skills dude you can just hack the
robots stop tonight alright let’s get back on track everyone what’s the poster
child coming back no she’s got a warm core about the robots anyway I don’t
know when the poster child will be back hey I need to speak with you alright
why did the cash register come up three hundred dollar short what how do I know
I don’t even do the cash oh you still could have had the opportunity and I
mean there is motive there what with your situation what the hell do you
seriously accusing me it’s been pretty fucking tough lately what do you think
I’d stoop that low seriously look I am NOT attacking your
character I’m you think given your current ID and Eric you’re talking my
lowest I didn’t take any of the money I need the consistent source of income
not a one-time thing one-time thing you know I can’t believe this I can’t
believe that you’ve singled me out first do you just have something against me
when did i wronged you Jesus Christ yeah someone took the money for real
fuck the corporate overlords I guess this is Dan a money stealing queen so I
counted all of the cash in the register no that’s all the checks from this last
week I came up $300 short I looked at who paid cash who pinned credit checked
it twice or what’s more came up short third time they’ll short listen accusing
you of anything you have any idea what might be happening
I appreciate your not treating me like a criminal about the money I don’t know
who took it and frankly I don’t think it was right of you to be so accusatory
toward the dropout look I realize that was a bit aggressive toward the drop
though and I don’t hate the guy and I don’t have anything against him or
anything but given his current situation it is not outside the realm of
possibility she would take the money I’m going to be as polite as I can he didn’t
do it you don’t have evidence but he did you can’t jump to conclusions mine would
you send me my sister sir I haven’t seen her today what she was supposed to be
here like 30 minutes never mind I will go find her thank you I’m back and better than before
insurance work but it speaks the emptiness accepting yes that I can’t be
the tempting this of the chills the ills the short felt there was the lady in the
white dress call me she tells my paranoid ramblings and late night chills
but the cost is high and getting them some tour and my last daughter’s Teddy
won’t give me any more I’ll be time to fill the emptiness
inside Hey oh no no no Jesus come on no oh shit
what’s wrong the money you took it didn’t you to do this was can’t
seriously be happening you can’t seriously be an edit I thought that you
were I thought that I was better than the letting you do this no no this is
seriously the last of it I’m done okay what’s choo home like you take care of
you don’t worry about the money I will figure something out poster-child open the damn door don’t fucking text me and tell me you’re
not hope to open the door talk it’s not that hard what do you want shit show I like this
no and I don’t feel sorry God put it into us any party but you can forgive not going back you
can’t make yourself a victim it’s not just the fucking restaurant there’s so
much more you don’t even know bullying tell me well let’s see I’m failing three
courses I lost all my motivation and everyone from the restaurant to my
family is expecting me baby the second coming of Christ I know yes I know I have dropped out I found a way but it
wasn’t easy whew it’s not worth it for you to throw
away all that you watch I’ve done nothing with my life fuck everything you
haven’t fucked anything up but you’re about to
I lost oh my god it’s okay to lose you lost you know we don’t hate you you can
redeem yourself by helping in other ways like how we use the things our privilege
to have education connections I don’t know you’re a smart kid you’ll figure it
out like talk to the president she’s fucking crazy to him so were you look at
this place I don’t know not for you guys she offered me a position what why the
what did you take I didn’t want to betray you all that’s not betrayal you
can use that position to help us out talk to people it’s not even a real
position it’s just a paid internship that might lead to watch bill it’s a
start no I tried I can’t bring myself to try
again just to fail you want to talk about betrayal that’s betrayal giving up
leaving us with no chance trying and failing is better than
nothing at all I really don’t want to do this well that’s life
sometimes I think she’d rather kick a rusty nail than do it’s true don’t try
it though you might catch tetanus I know rather die than face home again
but you’re the only one who has the ability to help fuck poster child okay the poster child I mean of course you’re not good but I’m
gonna ask anyways because I don’t have the emotional complexity to comfort
someone I hate so much are you good I’m fine
it’s family don’t worry about me I’ve never seen you like this I know I’m the
last person we want to talk to right now but trust me it’ll help let it out
what’s up my sister isn’t madam’ she is addicted
to heroin and it’s my fault don’t blame yourself
all the hell that your family’s going through that your sister did something
you never and I expected a rest but nothing so if dreams
she was always into trouble and coupled with her routine routine week she was
smoking and coping with other teams she was always so extreme I don’t think it’s
the weed societal views of the few fall under the crack the style of the suicide
by state-sponsored you’ll be ok worried I’m sure she’d understand
but I didn’t have a choice and I didn’t have a plan charge her for drugs
what the fuck should I have done don’t blame yourself no I owe you an apology
these last few weeks have been hell for me and I have tended to take that out on
you I am sorry for yelling at you I am sorry for blaming you in ER look I know
I still owe you that promotion no it’s fine really no it’s not fine I have been
selfish for my entire life and I think it’s time I took back someone else for
once so you are still looking for a place to stay I have a couch but all day I talked to the manager his sister
overdosed holy shit yeah the man did you call 911 for an ambulance gonna charge
you for drug possession he’s giving me a place to stay
promise me promotion his way of deeming Welsh if do you think you’ll come
through I don’t know regardless I told him to give it to the
parent before me she needs that opportunity would at a stable job with
all those benefits and stuff yeah I figured I might get somewhere by
enrolled somewhere after passing the GED but all this is fucked good oh yeah I was just thinking about
something you want me to give that person a job I want you to give that
person a chance why it’s the owners lie on me that’s it like on your way down up
on your feet okay those are some pretty good rides but I think I can speak for
the audience and say that I didn’t get any of the points for trying to mate you
can ride – oh sweet nothing like on your relevant having to see us will do better
I know she’ll do better the question is when this internship offer was extended
to you not to your friends not to those who need it that’s right
it wasn’t extended to those two meetings damn good job twisting my word
still I’m only responsible for myself life’s easier that way not fine look at
it this way your employees are becoming increasingly an increasingly volatile
you changed that I was a temporary solution there won’t be a new one of me
every year I’ve gone after this year you need a new poster child so you want me
to make a single parents representation of our company exactly if you elevate
the parent to a corporate position it shows the workers that you have some
semblance of sympathy for them even though you don’t it shows that that
someday they too would reach corporate you
they can’t do you tell they know that I’m not one of you the parent nope the
parent is one of them the true poster child don’t do it based on ideology do
it because it will save your couple from the president need internship
don’t worry about it offers to you in the regional office I wouldn’t but I
worked with our jobs besides this one in my camp we know you wouldn’t have the
Opera couldn’t do it we believe in you I don’t know how to thank you this is my
musical you let me along the plot but really I’m sure what now well you have a
chance that’s all we know for I’m in the same boat as you those chumps the tuner
me lately the GED I’m planning the role in a community college or something and
maybe I’ll have better luck this time that’s all it is chance not a guarantee
I think ever is what about you me um well I guess I should start by saying I
am sorry for putting you in this position
look let’s not play the blame game I was selfish and it took something huge from
you realize your sister yes she’s now facing charges for drug
possession and paraphernalia she’s going to be fine – you don’t know
that live a little bit come sit without a
care we’ll share the benefits when we breathe quickly in there please don’t
believe that I don’t care you see I need to relieve my own more than you can be
redundant we’ve all heard read or seen things in the media about Hoffa
in the age of information everyone can be easy to relegate do you have to say
we put ourselves into echo chambers I may not be the poster child with this
story but I’m the poster child other numbers isn’t this about illness yeah
the script says under that impression when I signed the
contract to be in it this is the title the restaurant yeah
and there’s a subtitle about Millennials and another people of color see a title
that’s exactly what it is isn’t it the restaurant
it is what restaurant result many others the things that happened in this
restaurant aren’t under dr. Connors what happened we know right after all the
work in I named you
